"Could not find Discord executable." on Linux

See original GitHub issue

On a Linux Mint Rosa machine, running sudo beautifuldiscord solves the problem of lack of permissions to access ./app, but does not find the Discord executable in the end. All it prints is Could not find Discord executable, and when I never tampered with my Discord dir in any way, I don’t get why this error persists.

Problem still exists on Arch Linux, Installed Discord, Discord-Canary and Beautiful-Discord via Arch AUR.

Cannot find executable error every time no matter which directory or if with sudo or not.

AUR is known to have issues with discord modifications. You could try sudo chown -R USERNAME /path/to/discord or use the DiscordDownloader script which removes the need for sudo.
